This was the first casa we stayed in and probably the most charming and authentic Cuban experience, as the others were more like small hotels. We managed to communicate well with Mercedes although her english is as good as our spanish! Mercedes is very hospitable and her food is wonderful. She always offered us a drink when we returned from... More

The place was clean and well kept on a good location. Mercedes does not speak English but her son Michael does very well. They were very helpfull. Breakfast was very good. We would certainly recommend this Casa.

Stayed here back in 2008 but my partner and I have such fond memories of staying with Mercedes and her son and daughter in law. Nothing was too much trouble and they gave us a taste of Cuban family life. Great food and delicious drinks. Highly recommended.

This casa is the REAL deal, from the rooms, to the food, to the awesome hospitality. Authentic CUBA. Mercedes and her son Mykel go out of their way to make you feel as if you are one of their own. Familia, estan en nuestros corazones, mil gracias por su amor, attencion y por su puesto esa langosta....los recordamos, Tere, Mary,... More

Tia Mercedes, I miss your coffee and yummy chicken, frijoles and arroz. Your house is always so welcoming. We don't know when but we look forward to our best visit - and sitting in your kitchen enjoying your care and warmth. We're far away but you are not far from our thoughts.

We visited several casa particulares in different towns in Cuba. This casa was the one we appreciated most! It was´not the most exclusive but senora Mercedes and her son made our stay great. Her cooking is the best in Cuba! Calm and peaceful location. Free coffe and juice.

We stayed in the casa particular for 1 week and found it absolutely lovely. It is an exciting experience to Michael (the son) is a very entrepreneurial spirited guy that has a lot of recommendations, is well connected to all the People and was very helpful as a "travel agency" for all our activities.

Best stay of our holiday. Watched the world passing the road while sitting on the terrace with the best mojito made by Mercedes. The food Mercedes prepares is so delicious after all the dinners in the state owned restaurants. The best place to relax!!

On first impressions I thought we were going to have a difficult time here as Mercedes does not speak English. However, her son Michael works in a local hotel and has excellent English and so can help with any needs or questions you might have. They have an excellent range of activities you can book through them. Despite the language... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Mercedes' for three nights between 14-17th July and this was by far and away the best casa of our entire time in Cuba! Mercedes and her family are so welcoming, nothing is too much to ask. The casa is an easy five minute walk to the main square (Vinales is very small) where all... More
